Alertus Desktop Notification

Alertus is a software used by APSU Public Safety to notify all APSU owned computers in the APSU network of an incident. A screen will show the pertinent information for notification. If a student is in class and the professor is using the projector the notification will show on the screen. All APSU computer lab screens will also show the notifications.
